Kiddie Ride, LA Fog Series 2015 I don't know the colors and towering cranes in the background made a nice mix of light. Moon above the ride.

I’m not sure if you can put photos in the comments. So maybe a link to a photo while I try to figure this out. All else fails anyone leaving a comment will be the entries.

Give-Away, Here are a couple of the 4-6 photos you will have a choice of.

Here it is!
I went out last night and shot the Ports of Call LA Harbor lights.

Here is another one from the same area, this one I decided was a keeper when I looked at the shot on the camera last night. Played with it a bit.

I might make some final adjustments, but these 2 photos will be in the selection. I will try to get the rest up tomorrow, Sunday, night USA PST time.

I did not say that friends and family can not enter, because at this point they may be all that enter. At my discretion, I will award 2 prizes if  family/friend wins and enough new/different/other people enter. 5-10 people?? It is my interest to give to you the public the prize. My friends and family get to ask me for photos anytime they want!

Anyway, it is late but I wanted to get this out tonight.

A taste, hope you like them and stay for some more.

Creative shooting,

It’s a Give-Away! 8×10 framed original Photograph by Vanderhoof Photography

Free!

Trona Pinnacles 2015

Trona Pinnacles 2015

Just post a photo of yours in my comments section and I will add you to a drawing for an 8 x10 original photograph, printed on archival paper, matted, signed and framed. Outside frame dimensions 12.5 x 15.5 inches.

I will select 4-6 photos that the winner can choose from and print each photo to order on archival paper. I will ship it to the winner free of charge.

Yes, this is part of my advertising/marketing. I want people to interact with my blog. I want to show off what I shoot so I can make a living.

I’m sure I will offer Fine Art Prints in promotions in the years to come as well.

Let’s see how many people can get a photograph posted by Friday, Feb. 13th. I’ll announce the winner on Sat. Feb. 14th.

So, every week starting on Saturday and ending on Friday, anyone posting a photograph in my “Comments” (nothing X-rated, will consider classic nudes as fine art, but I will keep it to clean artistic nudes.), will be entered in that week’s contest. Odds depend on how many people enter. While you may post more than 1 photo, you name will only be entered in the drawing once. Winners will not be allowed to enter again, but may continue to post photos anyway. After all I want you all to come back and stay a while.

I will run this drawing till June 27, 2015. The last winner will be announced June 28, 2015. (unless I’m out of town.)

ALL PHOTOS WILL BE SHIPPED IN 3-5 WEEKS OF THE WINNER’S WINNING WEEK.

Warning: I may be out traveling and have to vary this schedule some. But what can you expect for free………

So talk it up. Post some photographs. Let’s have some fun! I look forward to seeing all you photographs.

Also I’m editor of the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter Camera Committee’s newsletter Focal Points. So I’m seeing a lot photos of members as the travel around and keeping my hand in the design business. I’m sure I’ll be talking about travel with them as well travels with my father and Clive, my camping/photography friend.

My Dad, (world traveler that he is), is looking at the Great Lakes area and a Norway cruise. The Norway cruise I have the choice of either London or Rotterdam as the embarking point. Have not been to Europe yet, so anyone having input on which City/area I might enjoy photographic-ly more. Or just some insights on those places. Let me a message in the “Comments”. Will spend a day or so in one of those cities before the cruise.
